a beutiful 3 rooms/3 stories hotel
super location, sit right by the magical Shirakawa river. There is no services/reception counter at Shikinean hotel, everything is automatic, you receive the main door pass code before check in, also entry code for 3 different bedrooms. all went neat and easy. 3 rooms on each floor are of different design and display of arts. beds are comfy, we slept well every night. nearby the hotel are endless restaurant choices, subway station is less then 10 mins away and there is a small local shopping street if you walk along the Shirakawa to Higashiyama. everything is wonderful here. will certainly come back again.

Heads up in Kyoto.
Nice place to stay, but beware. It’s not a hotel, or an inn, not even a B&B. There is NOBODY around. It’s 3 rooms stacked on one another beside a pleasant stream. The amenities, the bed, the bathroom are excellent. The top 2 floor rooms are only accessible by a steep stairs. Every taxi we hired in Kyoto could not find this place. It’s on a quiet street in Gion with a tightly packed, but pleasant neighborhood with many good restaurant choices. This is a good choice in Gion...but beware.

Gorgeous property. Gion is hands down my favorite area ive seen. Been in japan for 2 weeks. Only small issue with some dead bugs and small flies in restroom. Other than that, this place was amazing. Super high tech too. I loved it. Would do gion and stay here again.
